Field Notes is a devastating new poem by Governor General Award winning Canadian poet Don Domanski, author of All Our Wonder Unavenged and Bite Down Little Whisper.
we are raised among lupines and atrocities
among insects and their lamentations
where there are no gods left in the clouds
no darkness apart from darkness
"No one writes like Domanski. His metaphors, both original and profound, cast a spell. He's a necromancer of words, a seer who describes what is taking place on the other side of light." (Lorna Crozier)
"Each poem, beautiful, bewitching, unfolds with crystalline clarity and with a music that is both lush and subtle. Don Domanski's poems are intimate, but intimate on a grand scale. As far as I am concerned, there is no better poet writing in English." (Mark Strand, on All Our Wonder Unavenged)
Don Domanski was born and raised on Cape Breton island, and now lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He is the author of nine collections of poetry.
Corbel Stone Press is honoured to publish a new work by this revelatory poet, in a numbered edition of 40, one for each line of the poem.
Each exemplar will be accompanied by a singular 'field note' in the form of a feather, handsewn onto aquarelle mount card. The feathers have been collected by Autumn Richardson over the past five years from Canada, Ireland and the north of England.
